    The boy killed at the fair

    Now my condolences go to the family as i dont know how i would cope if i lost my boy.

    But! why are they blaming the fair for him being able to walk from the bouncy castle to the ride? It's not like the fair are his babysitter's and why weren't his parents watching him on the bouncy castle as these are the best times of your child's life.

    IMO

    I heard of this 1 today but this 1 you mentioned different cos bouncy castle?

    Very few parents are going to admit that their neglect was the cause of their childs death. Maybe they will in time but not straight away, the natural process is to look for someone else to blame first.

    very sad, how quickly a life can be taken x

    Absolutely heartbreaking.

    ditto all of the above comments. too often I see small children wandering around fairs, shops, etc with no-one in sight.

    Do any of you remember the bouncy castle court case - where the people who hired the castle were sued over one million by the mother of a boy who got brain damage from being kicked on it.

    Similar to this case in that his father was there (and not supervising)

    BTW The case was taken to appeal and turned over.

    noone else should be blamed and the parents should have kept an eye on him
    i feel sorry for them as any parent would but people who dont watch their kids annoy me

    i saw a toddler playing on a road which buses go down(i was on the bus) and the mum was just chatting away to a friend or someone on the pavement



    even the mccanns wouldnt accept it was their fault

    Awful for everyone concerned. my thoughts are with the family. grief causes many other emotions.

    I assume the family thought the child wouldn't be able to get so close to the ride due to health and safety.

    No, no one else should be blamed but in today's culture the fair ground will be and the parents will end up being millionaires.

    Its very sad, but maybe there was not a barrier around the ride ?, it amazes me that most of these rides don't have barriers, take the Waltzers for example you can stand next to it when its at full speed, we dont know what exactly happened but its not difficult for your child to run off and be hit if there was no correct barrier in place.

    A 2 year old I would have on reins in a fair,theme park,day or night. Cos it was evening doesn't really come to it. Although I've always took pushchairs for my younger ones when we been out to somewhere like this,but def reins if no pushchair.

    I was working at Manchester airport and two muslim women were chatting (Veiled) while one there babies (about nine months) crawled away and was going down an escalator on his hands and knees,Luckily a worker saw him and just grabbed him as he reached the bottom,
    Maybe a licence to have kids would be a good idea,
